CWRU nears construction kickoff this fall for Maltz Performing Arts Center expansion

 

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Case Western Reserve University passed an important hurdle Thursday toward starting construction this fall on a long-planned expansion of the Maltz Performing Arts Center at the Temple-Tifereth Israel in University Circle.

On Thursday, the city’s Euclid Corridor Design Review Committee voted to approve final plans for the project. The vote constitutes a recommendation for approval by the city’s planning commission, which will review the project Friday.

A re-installation...this time at a new location:

 

East Bell Park, which occupies the old site of the Cleveland Institute of Art at 11141 East Blvd.

 

’Turning Point’ sculptures ready to turn heads once again at CWRU

Updated 6:40 AM; Today 5:00 AM

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The “Turning Point” sculptures created by the celebrated American architect and Cleveland native Philip Johnson are being reinstalled at the John and Mildred Putnam Sculpture Collection at Case Western Reserve University.

 

In their new location, the sculptures will become part of the new East Bell Park, a 4.2-acre property on the site of the former Cleveland Institute of Art Gund Building at East Boulevard and Bellflower Road in University Circle. CWRU and the Cleveland Museum of Art purchased the propertyand jointly own it.

Sigh, I liked that building.  Would have made a great CWRU Art Dept. and CMA art restoration facility connected underground to the CMA.

There was the plan for the whole CMA library to be moved to that building. The last i heard is the plan for a new building, whenever that takes shape, will involve art (and art history?) classes - likely a joint program between CWRU and CIA.  Of course, they already had a substantial facility that could have been accommodated for that.  I kind of liked the idea of another highrise apartment tower going up there; it doesn't have to take up a lot of the property.  Anyway, for right now I'm very glad to see the Johnson sculptures back in such a public place.

Wow, Signet isn't wasting any time. Perhaps it's just me, but for those developers who don't announce projects until they have their financing in place, they seem to be getting their shovels in the ground a lot quicker than they used to.

Beat me to it- the development on Mt. Sinai is going up quickly.

The SW corner!

The Hope Lodge at 11432 Mayfield Rd will possibly be expanding soon if the city approves their recently submitted permit. The lodge (which provides housing for cancer patients) has been raising funds to add new common space and an additional 11 new suites to their already existing 31.

The Hough and Ansel development is live online for early leasing. It's been dubbed The Axis at Ansel. I'm optimistic that this will fill up since multiple departments at CWRU are going to be moved to Maltz which is just down the street.

Ansel Road once had a row of rather upscale apr. bldgs.; some still stand, fortunately.

This project is in the gray area between Upper Chester and the UC3/Circle Square developments. And what parking garage are they demolishing? And why?

If you check this building in street view, it seems to have a car sized door facing E. 105th. Maybe this?

Zoning approval was given for the conversion of 11203 Stokes (was Cleveland Clinic Fairhill) to residential and today, a building permit was submitted for the 49.6k sq ft facility itself to be turned into apartments. Still waiting on the townhouses.

This is such a random and out of the way building, for it to be turned into apartments shows how hot the residential sector of University Circle is. I love it.

There's a number of them north of Hough, closer to Wade Park.

They were mainly from Edmunds north to Wade Park avenues.

I had no idea about those apartments. Some of them can definitely use some work, and I hope they get it before they are too far gone, but some of them look (at least from streetview) to be in fantastic shape. Devon House in particular, just south of Kenmore, is gorgeous and looks straight out of Shaker.

I decided to add up how many new housing units there were from building permits in 44106 for the year. This doesn't mean buildings completed in 2019 (Centric) or places without building permits for construction filed yet (library lofts, E 90). Just based off of permits in the calendar year.

My count (probably off by a couple) was 501 new units (part renovation part new construction). In a zip code with 13,514 units based on the last count, this would mark a 3.71% increase in one year. And things only seen to be accelerating for the future.

East 30th through East 105th used to be densely populated with single-family homes, duplexes, apartments and row-houses, with retail/mixed use on the Avenues and major cross-streets. That stock has been mostly depleted and eliminated, so any development that adds density to that large urban oasis is fantastic news.

Oh and I'm an idiot so I forgot part of 44106 is in Cleveland Heights. I can't find exact data for the Cleveland heights portion but based on census tracts and population density it makes up what I'm approximating to be 4,000 households. Once readjusted for this the increase in households for the Cleveland portion of 44106 comes out to ~5.26%.

I think I'll see about doing this for some other CLE zip codes

I no longer have easy access to population and housing stats, but I do remember that the boundary for 44106 is Coventry Road.

Library Lofts will be between East 105th and East 107th.

Which would put them in 44106. Didn't include them in the count because no construction permit has been filed yet.

Very nice. The other day when I went by the current structure was well into being demolished. That intersection is quite busy and noisy though. I just hope they do some quality construction or those folks along Stokes will need to invest in some white noise machines.

I got a picture of the demo today. Exciting to see!

Design review case for the Hope Lodge expansion to make 11 new suites and expand other facilities.

 

I'll be interested to see how they plan to do this.

The old Cleveland Fire Department station at Chester and 107th is about 80 percent demolished.

 

Just happened to be in the neighborhood; had no idea this demo was going on.  Maybe a good sign UC3 is on track? (This site is directly north of the existing CPL library branch.
